Regal, Wadley take LSC honors

E-T Staff Report
Jerome Regal, Marquis Wadley

Sophomore running back Jerome Regal and senior linebacker Marquis Wadley have been the Lone Star Conference offensive and defensive players of the week for their performances in Tarleton State's 20-17 upset victory over Midwestern State at Tarleton Memorial Stadium Saturday night.

Regal rushed 33 times for 152 yards and two touchdowns to take offensive honors while Wadley picked up defensive recognition after racking up 12 tackles and intercepting a pass with 48 seconds remaining to seal Tarleton's win.

The Texans were also honored as a team in the form of top 25 voting points. They didn't, however, receive enough votes to crack the American Football Coaches Association top 25 poll, which shows Midwestern dropping 12 spots to No. 16. Abilene Christian, who the Texans face at 4 p.m. Saturday at Cowboys Stadium, fell from No. 9 to No. 20 following a 16-13 home loss to Texas A&M-Kingsville.
